color of the day

Just washing the dishes, watching baseball, and thinking about writing  just four or five sentences about something true.

You know how it is when you wash a wine glass that had red wine in it but never got rinsed?

And the wine has dried up in the bottom of the glass and it forms those little crystals?

They are sort of crunchy, and a red so dark it is almost black.

And they melt into a wet paper towel, leaving a trail of watercolor maroon.

Merlot, cabernet, bordeaux, wine red.
